IoT continues to thrive, so does the threat of devastating cyber-attacks, for example last year’s ransomware attack that hit the NHS and disrupted their operating systems. With the development of technologies these attacks are becoming more sophisticated and more common.
We understand that businesses within the technological industry have a great responsibility to ensure that risk it mitigated when it comes to cyber-attacks on businesses most vital and confidential data and information.
Microsoft have launched new offerings to take security where it needs to go and where it has not gone before, the edge. A new series of services and features have been unveiled that will aim to harden not only our intelligent cloud but also the billions of connected devices that live on its edge. These services aim to make security easier for our customers to manage.
Over the past decade, alterations have been made repeatedly to ensure that security protection is strengthened. This expertise and advances have now been combined to secure billions of connected devices that will sit on the edge of the world’s computing network.
There is an introduction of security protection that is incorporated into the next generation the cloud and edge devices powered by microcontroller units (MCUs). This set of cloud-connected devices, run MCU chips that will power everything from house hold appliances such as a kettle to industrial equipment on factory floors. These connected devices are increasingly intelligent and connected, improving daily life in countless ways.
However, if these devices are not secure, they could make people, communities and countries incredibly vulnerable to cyber-attacks in more ways than ever before.
By combining the approach to Azure Sphere, the best hardware, services and software is bought together through innovation. Azure Sphere represents a crucial step for Microsoft by integrating innovation throughout every aspect of technology. It is thought that this solution will bring better security, resilience and developer agility to IoT devices than anything else on the current market.
In the past, there had been hesitancy over moving to the cloud due to feared security risks. However, the cloud is almost more secure than on-premise environments.
Over the past year, Microsoft have been working tirelessly in order to strengthen their solutions. As Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a cloud based service, new security innovations are rapidly developed and deployed, based on learnings and insights from Microsoft Intelligent Security Graphs.
Security has become a shared responsibility within an organisation. The continuing rise in security threats requires that employees within an organisation work together in new ways across the technical sector.
Today’s big security challenges required bold and impactful ideas. Whether it be strengthening current products, utilising big data to identify and disrupt threats, Microsoft provide solutions that deliver a world-class security system.
Columbus provide a solution to security, Dynamic Security Management, which is an innovative tool that enhances the security setup and monitoring of Microsoft Dynamics AX2012, through the improved separation of duties and enhanced security.
DSM will use the data from the track of each employee’s working procedure in AX2012m and automatically find the best matching security role, show what is missing in terms of access within the security role and which duties and privileges can be added to create full coverage of the recorded working process.
Dynamic Security Management is an innovative matching solution in AX which will automatically lead your business through the process and ensures that your business’s ERP data is secure.
